You can’t go wrong by adding lasers to things, especially power tools. My circular saw wouldn’t be half as awesome as it is, if it didn’t have a cool aiming laser on it. Even the humble measuring tape can have some pewpew awesomeness if this Laser Level Tape Measure is anything to go by. But the awesomeness doesn’t stop at lasers, it’s got 2 dimensional spirit-levelling things, AND it measures …. stuff. Up to 7.5 metres (25′) of stuff to be exact. US$15.99
# This 3-in-1 laser level 25 feet (or 7.5 meter) tape comes with both Inch and Metric units, it has markings every 1/8-inch as well as 1 millimeter.
# The back features a laser that projects a sharp and bright line onto walls, making it great for hanging pictures around the house or cutting drywall.
# Two levels on the top ensure proper accuracy.

Lasers are cool (no doubt) and having a level can't hurt either; the price isn't bad for both with a tape measure is not bad, but why you need them, I don't know. For short distances, a tape measure will never die. For longer distance measurements, a [url=http://www.johnsonlevel.com/laserLevels.asp]laser distance measure[/url] is the way to go. For [url=http://www.johnsonlevel.com]construction levels and measuring tools[/url], give me a Johnson.
